Understanding the set-up and organizational structure of a publicly funded private school in Norway can be confusing – especially when information given by a school is so vague! We’ve improved the “sort of updated” school organizational diagram (as found on the unmarked page 12 of Birralee International School’s current Parent Handbook) – see below for both versions!
Some interesting points of note:
1) Both the school and the kindergarten are detailed as being “English language” (contrary to the kindergarten claiming to be bilingual – much to the chagrin of many parents with children there).
2) Elin Hitchman is daily leader and administrative director of the non-profit that runs BOTH the school and the kindergarten – she is known to claim “no responsibility” for anything that goes on at the kindergarten, but it seems she actually DOES have responsibility for both entities.
